Hey, a federal judge just ruled the Kentucky ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.
Are you serious? I’m on my phone and I’m getting really emotional in line at the bank
I worked on the “Vote No on the Amendment” campaign back when they first put the constitutional ban in the state so this is just…very emotional
Yes. Just now. There’s an immediate stay as it’s going to appeals so no marriages yet, but yeah.
This is your friendly reminder that the judge who made the Pennsylvania gay marriage ruling is the same guy who ruled against teaching “intelligent design” in public schools in Kitzmiller vs. Dover (aka. the case behind one of the most melodramatic episodes of NOVA ever). AND that he did this despite being a Republican George W. Bush appointee.
Judge John Jones III is a man who sticks to his principles.
